Jessica Biel’s Morning Mantra is Refreshingly Relatable

Sure, celebrities operate on a financial level most of us can only dream of, but it seems like parenting challenges know no income bracket. That certainly seems to be the case with Jessica Biel, who recently shared her morning routine with The Skimm.

Though she starts her day with decaf (???), just about everything else feels so true to anyone who's had to get a small child -- and herself -- ready for the day.

Well good morning @JessicaBiel. #UpWiththeSkimm #SkimmLife Name: Jessica Biel Job: Mama Bear, actress, producer, wannabe alpinist, consummate student of the @WomanCareGlobal #ThenWhoWill campaign. What time do you get up? It varies but I would say always (2) hours before I'd really like to. How many times do you snooze? I'm not a snoozer. Never have been. Wish I was but I would never get up if I did. I do snooze periodically throughout the day during any sort of boring conversation. Do you snore? I don't think so. And even if I did, my dog Tina snores so loudly that no one would ever know if I did. Thanks T. 3 things you can't live without in the AM? Yoga. Eating breakfast with my kid. Listening to Erykah Badu while I eat with my kid. We love her. Favorite line from theSkimm recently? "What to say to your niece who just found out about Santa? It's OK. The Nazi Gold Train isn't real either. What's your morning drink? Bullet Proof Decaf Coffee. Who do you let speak to you before coffee? Wait... is that an option? Complete the sentence: Woke up like this: Disheveled, running late, doing too many things at once and underperforming all of them; but pretty thrilled about mediocrity! Could be a lot worse, guys. A lot worse.

Our favorite part is how she completes the sentence so familiar on Instagram: "Woke up like this."

"Disheveled, running late, doing too many things at once and underperforming all of them; but pretty thrilled about mediocrity!" Biel says. "Could be a lot worse, guys. A lot worse."

Amen, mama. Amen.
